Over the next three sessions we will aim to bust myths surrounding mental illness, destroy stigmas and provide strategies for restorative healing.
In this first session we will look at mental illness throughout history; how those afflicted have been treated. We will learn about mental illness through the lenses of art and poetry. Then finally will define terms and set up a rich context for the following two sessions.
